CabinI’ve been going back over the first pictures we took of our cabin, before it was renamed the sky castle, it’s hard to believe we have done so much with so little. Here are some of the original pix followed by more current pix. Enjoy!

    hello, just wondering if there is any info on earthbag/sandbag construction that pertains to cold enviroments such as northern Canada.

    thanks you

      Dan, sure there is, but I don’t write about it, you will need to search the internet. I don’t write about it because it’s not pertinent to my situation. I’m sure you can find lots of info on line about living and building in cold environments.

    Nice pics, thanks for sharing. One question…do you ever get water runoff from the mountain into your cabin?

    • Wretha

      MsBelinda, no we don’t, though during the rainy season the water does run on both sides of the cabin. It’s something we have considered quite a bit. We have a creek bed that runs across the front (south) side of the property, it’s dry most of the year, but during the rainy season it does flow.
